Coronation tram
19-APR-2013

Coronation tram

The upcoming coronation dominates Amsterdam right now, and everything has gotten into the spirit, including the transportation system.

I've been too exhausted to comment much or even process any pictures since we arrived after getting one hour of sleep (literally) before our 6:15 flight on Friday morning and walking from morning till night on Saturday. Today we got to places by canal boat, so at least I can walk ;-). This was the easiest picture I had to process since it was a one-shot deal and I didn't have to go through numerous versions of the same thing to decide which one I liked best.

Hope to catch up soon!

Nikon D800 ,Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
1/200s f/7.1 at 35.0mm iso320 full exif
